Bumper year for Iemons

This article was originally published in Foodnews

ITALY exported a total of 11 546 tonnes of lemon juice concentrate last year, an increase of 16.2% on 2009, but still down on the high of 12 460 tonnes shipped in 2007. Germany upped off-take considerably last year (+28.2%) to 2 164 tonnes, regaining its position as Italy's biggest buyer of the product. France followed close behind with 2 118 tonnes, which was up 17.1% on the 1 808 tonnes recorded in 2009, and the best result for the past six years. The UK, which used to buy some 2 000 tonnes during 2005-2007, cut its off-take dramatically to just 1 276 tonnes in 2007 and has continued in the same vein, taking 1 369 tonnes in 2010. Smaller buyers such as the Netherlands, the US and Switzerland all increased imports, by 9.6%, 100.7% and 33.4% respectively. Japan, however, reduced exports to 675 tonnes (-21.1%).
